45 min muc
I am flying LH F from EWR connecting in MUC. I have 45 min there before I continue with Aegean in J to ATH. Is 45 min enough time in MUC?
Is that all on the same ticket, or purchased separately?

That’s a very tight connection on an international ticket! But, since it was booked as one ticket, if you misconnect, it will be the airlines responsibility to get you all the way to Greece.
I think you’ll be okay assuming flight is on time, especially coming from Lufthansas First Class. But, it’s nice to know you won’t be out anything if there are delays.
MUC is a relatively small airport. Two years ago my wife flew from ORD to MUC on AirBerlin, the plane was late on arrival, she had 18 min to connect, and she still made it to the connecting flight (ok, she had run like…..). And she was in business class, so she was the first one off that plane.
As [USER=1592]@Daniel B[/USER] mentioned Munich is indeed a pretty small airport and I assume transiting wouldn’t be too long if everything goes planned (since you won’t have to leave T2). Given that it’s all in one ticket you shouldn’t worry and even if you were to miss your flight there are still flights to ATH that depart just a bit later.
Also helps of you let the crew know 45-60 minutes prior to landing that you have a short connection. They may be able to make arrangements to have someone meet you at the gate or let the other flight know that you’re on your way. At the very least, they’ll have you off the plane first, ahead of other F passengers (assuming you’re the only one with a tight connection)
